Do you know how to clean your hand held shower head? If you don’t do this from time to time the tiny shower head holes will eventually get clogged up.
Mine was sending out what I call “zingers” of water. In other words, it was spewing water in all directions. Namely on the wall behind the toilet.
How To Clean Your Hand Held Shower Head With Natural Ingredients:
To clean your shower head, use a big Ziplock baggie and a bottle of white vinegar. Take these items into the bathroom.
Then take the shower head off the holder and let it hang down.
The shower head doesn’t reach the bottom of my bathtub. To remedy this, I found a covered casserole dish to give it height.
Then I placed the shower head in the Ziplock baggie. I held it in place while I poured half water and half white vinegar into the bag.
Once the shower head is covered with liquid, zip the baggie up around the shower head. Leave it zipped overnight in order to work its magic.
How To Clean Your Hand Held Shower Head The Following Morning:
The next morning, empty the vinegar and water from the baggie and wash off the shower head.
Then put the shower head back in place. Turn on the water to see if the tiny holes are still clogged or are now clear.
Instant fix! No more zingers. All the little holes in the shower head have water flowing through and none are clogged.
This sequence of events has always worked great for me. I just have to remember to do it from time to time. Usually, the “zingers” let me know that it is time to get out the vinegar and clean it.
Using What I Have To Clean My Home:
I like to use cleaning supplies that are homemade whenever I can. And I keep vinegar around for various uses. There are various ways you can clean household items with vinegar and/or baking soda.
